As California and the nation confront the impact of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, I want to update you on Spectrum Photography's response to the evolving situation, this is as of March 31, 2022. 

The safety of my family, my clients, and their families is crucial to me and in how I conduct business. Given that I work with newborn babies, my business has always followed a strict protocol of frequent and rigorous cleaning and disinfecting in the studio. 

Additionally, it is important that you know the studio is not open to the public and is by appointment only. 

Below are the measures adopted in light of COVID-19
  • We book sessions 24 apart to sanitize studio surfaces, props, and blankets.
  • We offer non-contact, verbal-only, parent guided posing for clients that prefer limited physical contact.
  • I wear medical grade gloves
  • I wear a Kn95/N95 mask in session
  • We pay attention to what we touch during the shoot, taking frequent breaks to sanitize hands thoroughly.
  • We have the studio cleaned by professionals wearing protective gear, and air the space out well before clients arrive. 
  • We use hospital-grade disinfectants that are safe for newborns and children. 
  • We conduct all client and internal meetings remotely, and use the studio for photoshoots only.
  • Clients remove shoes before entering the studio and encouraged to use available hand sanitizer (that is 60% ethanol and/or 70% isopropanol).
  • NO SICK RULE: clients may not come to the studio or an outdoor session, if they have any symptoms such as (but not limited to):
    • Active cough or shortness of breath (even if it is allergies)
    • Have had a fever in the last 10 days 
    • Have any cold or flu-like symptoms 
    • Returned from travel outside the state in the last 14 days 
    • Exposed to a confirmed positive case of COVID-19 (without PPE equipment)
  • We remain flexible and accommodating on refund and rescheduling arrangements.
  • We do not charge cancellation or rescheduling fees.
  • If myself or anyone in my family (husband and two boys) have any illness, I will reschedule our session.
  • Installed a medical grade air filtration system that is intended for a location that is 1600 sq ft (the studio is 500 sq ft). The air is cleaned of pollen, dust, mold, bacteria, common smoke, carbon dust, and COVID as the filtration removes 99.9% of particles down to 0.1 microns. Covid is 0.1 micron which means it would be removed from the studio.
We will continue to monitor the situation, implement best practices, and respond to your concerns and suggestions.

I am looking forward to everyone being healthy and able to move about as you wish. I miss all of my clients and can't wait to see everyone back in the studio and in the fields having photo sessions again.
